Just ten days to go until our Autumn Show at Eglinton on Saturday 22 October. Last year’s event was a mighty success with the biggest ever turn out of riders from our own club. Our Donegal neighbours turned up in numbers also and we welcomed a few visitors from as far afield as Galway and Clare.
The Team Show Jumping Challenge is the main feature of the day and all eyes are fixed on the P. Mulrine & Sons Northwest Challenge Cup. You don’t need to do any additional jumping to be on a team — your round in the individual graded class counts towards the team competition.
**Teams of four must comprise two riders from each of the two lower grades (Primary, Advanced), and an Intermediate rider. The fourth member may be of any grade.** Francis is the chief team selector and he needs to know as soon as possible whether you plan to compete on the day. Contact him on 086 372 2542 to let him know whether he can include you in his plotting and scheming.
